    Default Would you allow your partner to donate his sperm to his ex?

    By 'allow' I mean would you be ok with it, being his decision.

    If the mother of his current child(ren) asked him to be a donor and in return he would no longer have to pay child support (at all)?


    Just to clarify: This is a hypothetical question we are asking for a short film. We are looking for more-or-less general answers and asking both women and men, in different forums as well as questionnaires and in person. Thank you for the responses

    Absolutely under no circumstances.
    Wouldn't even entertain the thought for a millisecond.

    Err no.

    What?!?!!! No way. That sounds like a ridiculous 'trade off'.

    I don't have a partner, but as a single mum on this forum I have seen a gazzillion posts from people complaining about the amount of child support their DH's pay their ex, so it wouldn't surprise me if someone would consider it. But I do still think most women would not like it at all for personal reasons.
